DesignThinkers, Canada’s only annual conference for visual communicators, is coming to British Columbia on May 29 and 30, 2018. The two-day Vancouver conference offers in-depth analyses of trends and best practices in branding, design thinking, design management, communications technologies and user experience with a range of opportunities to exchange ideas with colleagues, new and old. The hope is that attendees will leave with a reconsidered and refined design or creative process, feeling inspired, refreshed and more connected to the creative communications community.
A full list of speakers for this year’s conference is now available (linked here), with a diverse and highly interdisciplinary group of individuals and professions represented. The speakers are poised offer in-depth discussions and practical advice to the over 600 design professionals that will be in attendance. An early preview of some of this year’s presentations is also now available, linked here.
Complementing a stimulating speaker series, this year’s DesignThinkers Vancouver exhibitors will include printers, paper companies, type foundries, stock suppliers and others eager to work with communications professionals. With four concurrent streams of sessions also taking place throughout the two-day conference, participants can choose presentations to match their personal learning objectives.
